Live Entertainment

Live entertainment will be provided this year by Ten-Eighteen Band and Shakedown Band.

Ten-Eighteen is a local group comprised of current and former law enforcement and emergency services workers playing classic rock and roll.  Ten-Eighteen will take the stage from 5:30pm until 6:30pm.

Shake Down is a six-piece variety band located in the foothills of North Carolina.

Combining a mixture of both “past” and “present” in both talent and music, they perform a wide variety of music including beach, shag, rock’n’roll, funk, Motown, country, and top 40.  Shakedown will take the stage from 7pm until 9pm.

Both bands will play at the main stage located adjacent to the exhibit hall.  Those who attend National Night Out will be given a free door prize ticket at the entry gate.  A drawing will be held at the main stage during intermission (time to be announced at the event).  Bring a lawn chair and enjoy some free live entertainment by our local talent!

Food & Beverages

Hotdogs, popcorn, and bottle water will be handed out free of charge to those who attend the event (while supplies last).  Wendy’s Crispy Chicken Sandwiches, Jr. Frosty’s, and can drinks will be available for purchase for $1 each.  All proceeds generated during the event directly benefit Alexander County Crime Stoppers, a local non-profit resource partner with law enforcement.  All food items will be available at the fairgrounds cook shack.

Emergency Vehicle Displays

Various emergency vehicles and other equipment will be on display during the event this year.  This will be a great time for the young and young at heart to get a closeup look at some of the vehicles that emergency responders use to keep our community safe and fro you to tell those workers “thank you” for the jobs they do to protect us all daily.

Other Displays

Every year our planning committee works to improve upon the previous year’s event.  This year we are pleased to announce some additional displays that we plan to have for National Night Out.  If you or your kids love race cars be sure to check out two local teams that we plan to have on display!  Casey Iverson will also be at this year’s event to display and talk about his pulling tractor.
